I Took a Test About Being a BzzAgent on Smarterer and I'm considered an Expert, Yay :)

I took a test today about a group I've been participating with for years now and you've likely seen posts about on my blog and website.
I was happy to hear after the (pretty hard!) test that I'm an "Expert at BzzAgent." 
This is an exclusive test for BzzAgents that covers just about every component of what it means to be an Agent. Take it and show the world what kinda' Agent you are. 

Here's what they told me: 
Congrats - Only 4% of our users achieve the Expert level in the BzzAgent test, so you're in good company!
You're ranked #1001 on the Expert leaderboard in BzzAgent 
You’re ahead of the pack, and are fluent in this skill and its latest developments.

You can check out my Smarterer profile here:

Even if you're not a BzzAgent you can have fun and test your knowledge on Smarterer in many categories from Facebook and Twitter to Photoshop, Javascript or English for Dummies. Click here to check it out:
Browse Categories - Smarterer:

One of the great components of "Smarterer" might be for job seekers: "The Skills section of your resume is arguably the most valuable real estate professionals have to articulate their value, yet it is often exaggerated and wasted. Make your skills mean something by including your Smarterer scores."

You can also share what you know with others, such as:
Put your badges or a link to your Smarterer profile on, LinkedIn, or any other place you've set up a personal or professional profile. 

On your email signature:

By adding a link and badges to your Smarterer profile on your email signature you're promoting your skills with every communication. Also include this link when you post on forums or add comments to blogs as a way to strengthen your professional reputation.

So I recommend you go check out Smarterer and find out what you know, and what you don't know (and in the process learn more so that you DO know when you see the answers :) )

We're Greater Than AIDS so we Rock the Red Pump today and March 10

We're Greater Than AIDS so we Rock the Red Pump:

The Red Pump Project
Today (and tomorrow), we are proudly rocking our red pumps in commemoration ofNational Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day (March 10th). As you put on your favorite pair of red pumps or flats, we hope that you remember that this about more than making a fashion statement. It’s about women uniting to demonstrate Awareness is Always in Style.

We continue to be motivated by your support, honesty, and candor around the topic of HIV/AIDS in women and girls. This morning, we’ve had the chance to read many of your blog posts and view your photos and we have yet to stop smiling. While we love your styles, that’s not why we’re smiling… We’re smiling because in your own fashionable way, you are telling the world that you aren’t afraid to talk about HIV and that you are standing with your sisters who have been infected and affected by this disease.

Every 47 minutes, a woman will be diagnosed with HIV in the United States. Our hope is that you take today’s call to action to heart and continue to boldly and fiercely take the necessary steps to educate yourselves, protect your bodies, and advocate for your decisions.

Happy “Rock the Red Pump” Day!

Karyn and Luvvie

Take Charge. Take the Test.

Of the total number of new HIV infections among women, 57% were among black women, 21% were in white women, and 18% were in Latina women. To increase testing and knowledge among African-American women, the CDC is launching its Take Charge. Take the Test. campaign in 10 cities across the country. To learn more, click here.

We'd love to see the red pumps (or flats, or sneakers) that you have on today and tomorrow. Post pictures of them on the Red Pump Facebook page!

As always, we're so thankful for your support and for joining us in the fight against HIV/AIDS!

P.S. We're on Pinterest now!

Free Mineral Foundation & Moisturizers

Hurry! If you ever wanted to try that fancy mineral makeup (like I've wanted to, lol) but couldn't afford to (like me) right now you can try a few different samples and put them in your cart for free. The only cost will be a $1 for shipping plus tax,.
The reason I say hurry though is that you could try all the shades of the foundation by clicking on each one and adding it to your cart, but now 2 of them are already out of stock (boohoo) One of those got out of stock in between me adding them to my cart, and trying to purchase. So at last count you can try 4 shades of foundation and the brushes, plus a couple different types of moisturizer. Fun! I can't wait to try mine :)
